If your idea of a burrito begins with carnitas and ends with carne asada, it's time to think outside the caja. Chef Sameh Wadi has brought an entirely new twist to the humble tortilla roll-up with the unique Bangkok Burrito at World Street Kitchen (both the food truck and the new fast-casual restaurant on Lyndale). At his renowned fine-dining Mi...
Pasadita, my dear,
How thou woo me with thy drive-thru
And your inexpensive eats
But I fear
Not one of your qualities, not two
Can in any way beat
Your fresh, tasty, succulent, bean, cheese, tomato, cilantro, and onion-stuffed $5.99 burritos
